about why the president would choose luke? >> well, jack lew a favorite of president obama because he has serious knowledge of the federal budgets. he has a no drama style. he has been serving this president in a very high profile capacity since president obama took office as white house chief of staff and before that as the director of the office of management and budget. lew has served as director of those two big jobs. bottom line is we are told that he is well-trusted well regarded here at the white house, shep? >> probably not a household name everywhere but well known in washington, jack lew. >> no question about that certainly with those two high profile jobs here at the obama administration over the past four years has been engaged in some tough negotiations with lawmakers on capitol hill. this photo we are showing you is from new year's eve. is he on the right wearing glasses and a blue tie. and bottom line the top republican on the senate budget committee says while he offered this prediction about the confirmation battle. >> it is a bumpy confirmation process. i think the a

"washington post" reported that it could be background checks and set up a national database to track gun sales and make it harder for the mentally ill to purchase guns. these are still justroposals being considered. >>> all right, leigh glaser is check in the forecast. >> kind of clear out there tonight. we do have some very dense fog already being reported in the north bay. from high definition east bay cam you see clear skies, what a difference last night, we had the rain, the fog, nasty out there and then tonight, that area of low pressure moves to the south of us and we have seen nice clearing out there. live doppler 7-hd not picking up any returns at all. wet weathermaker has pushed to the south.
of who is going to be in the president's cabinet. jack lew is the likely nominee. if he picks lew it could set the stage for another contentious confirmation battle. is there any other kind these days, mike emanuel? it seems like everybody that is being picked with the sepgs of senator kerry looks like a tough battle on capitol hill tell us a little bit more about this. >> reporter: good afternoon to you, as you look the at recent nominations these people are all obama people and jack lew has served this president as director of the office of management and budget and white house chief of staff. we are told it is all but a done deal for jack lew to replace timothy geithner as treasury secretary. lew has become a favorite of the president because he has sharp knowledge of the federal budget and his style is no drama. his confirmation would likely be taking place during some bruising budget fight and as congress considers increasing the nation's credit card the debt limit from the podium the white house press secretary has avoided getting ahead of mr. obama. >> i have no other annou

of staff jack lew of management and budget is considered to be tim geithner's most likely successor and that's deputy national security adviser denis mcdonough. anything could change, but those could be the most likely picks. other members of the administration suggest they're heading for the exits and you would assume the stuff starts ranking up in the next week or so. lisa jackson announced her departure at the end of january and rebecca blank who took over in june after secretary bryson went on medical leave. also expected to leave ray lahood and ken salazar and steven chu. likely with appointments of lew and mcdonough you'll hear more voices demanding more diversity in that cabinet, if you will. how does the president end up solving that problem and create a cabinet that, "looks like america." >>> all right, picking a fight over the president's pentagon pick. one thing the left and the right can agree on. chuck hagel may have an uphill battle in the senate. next, we'll get the view from both sides. former romney campaign adviser dan seymour and dan clemens will be here for a deb
knowledge from the administration on that fact. if he sends up jack lew, that will be a tough nomination. >> chip, what do you think? tim geithner stepping down. how do you think it's going to impact? do you think, either of you, if the president were to ask tim geithner to stick around at least through that, like, listen, friend, can you extend this another six weeks because i don't want to go through a nomination fight in the middle of all of this as well, don't you think tim geithner would say okay? >> one thing i learned in politics, if the president of the united states asks you to do something, you usually do it. you do it enthusiastically. i think timothy geithner, i agree with what jimmy was saying, i think he knew for a long time he was leaving. they've had a long time to get their successor in place. i think it is going to be jack lew for a variety of reasons. in this fiscal cliff debate, we saw jack on the sideline and not fighting with the senators. think he was saving him for this nomination process. i think it is going to be jack. >> good to see you both. thanks, guys. >>>
. i'm also told, by the way, that jack lew who currently serves as the chief of staff to the president, been very involved in these fiscal cliff negotiations, is likely to be nominated as the next treasury secretary. he's got some republican opponents on the hill. and there's some concern in the business community that he doesn't have enough business and market expertise. but he is expected to be confirmed after nomination. >> chuck hagel, maybe to defense. jack lew to treasury. still have to do cia -- other jobs to do as well. but the president is still in hawaii right now, coming back over the weekend. >> and it's interesting when you talk about this president and talking to people who are familiar with his thought process. it's really about a comfort level for this president. he likes to nominate people he already knows, feels comfortable with in his inner circumstance. . we've seen that on the white house staff, for example. that's what i think we're seeing here in these nominations. >> obviously feels comfortable with john kerry who was nominated as secretary of state. i think he
is settling on the new pick for treasury secretary. he might announce it sometime this week. jack lew would replace timothy geithner if confirmed. prior to this role he was the direct are to you of office of management and budget. before that lew was the first deputy secretary of state and management resources. martha: washington is still reeling from the president's nomination of chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense. new hampshire senator kelly ayotte, one of a chorus of critics slamming the former nebraska senator. she says this. while i deeply respect senator hagel's service in vietnam i'm concerned by several boxes he took as senator, longstanding opposition to increase iran sanctions and his regarding hezbollah and hamas as well as our close al eye israel. senator hagel has one big fan, he has a lot of fans. this one is raising eyebrows the rogue nation of iran. a foreign ministry spokesman calls the nomination, a sign of quote, practical change to american foreign policy. he predicts that if hague bell is appointed relations between the united states and iran will improve. isr
commonly is jack lew. but he's not a clear candidate yet at least. secretary geithner has been very instrumental in talking to the congress for the last couple years about the budget and about the debt ceiling. he was very involved in 2011. he's obviously been very involved the last couple of months. if he leaves, i think we could -- it really depends who takes over for him. but i think we're -- i think we're looking at a lot of big issues to face before march and so it's really going to come down to who that person is that takes over. >> yeah, certainly. have to talk a little bit of football because we always talk about the commercials and the super bowl and how much money they bring in. there are reports that it might have the ad sales looking a little less hot, sexy, if you will, this year. are you hearing anything about that? and if so, what's behind it? >> about ad sales? >> yeah. well, no. about the content of them. i mean, remember all the talk about how sexy they are and, look it, i mean, they are painting on naked bodies here and you have, you know, all that. i mean, is the
